The Flyby 11/8/17 – Sayonara Sanvers, Hashtag Feminism, Arrowverse Week 5

On this episode of The Flyby, Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex celebrate the end of the #Sanvers romance that has plagued Supergirl for almost a season and a half now.  With a couple of decent episodes under its belt now, perhaps we’ll look back on the end of Sanvers as a Riker’s Beard moment that heralded a new, better direction for Supergirl? Then again maybe the Supergirl writers were just busy working on The Flash instead, which seemed desperate to cram the phrase “hashtag feminism” into this week’s episode as many times as possible.  Or perhaps they transferred over to Arrow so that they could give...

The Flyby 11/1/17 – Praise Rao! Arrowverse Week 4

On this episode of The Flyby, we are into week four of the new seasons of the #Arrowverse, and Rao damn it, we actually got an episode of Supergirl that wasn’t extremely painful!  Will it arrest the downward plunge Supergirl‘s been on or is it just a cosmic accident? Sarjex and Cranky T-Rex will talk about that and what’s happening in the rest of the Arrow universe, including some hilarious cameos on The Flash and the return of #Olicity to Arrow. Of course as always we also have episodes of The Gifted, Inhumans, and The Orville to round out the show...

The Flyby 10/25/17 – Arrowverse Week 3

On this episode of The Flyby, we are into the third week of the new seasons of the #Arrowverse, and the various shows are off to a pretty rocky start.  As the image above implies, Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex will have more ranting to do about how Supergirl has become a tertiary character on her own show.  Some of the other CW writers might’ve heard their complaints though, since it seems like Oliver may finally pick between being the Green Arrow and the mayor, while Wally West appears to be departing from The Flash after realizing how useless he is. Over on Fox, The Gifted keeps proving itself better than...

The Flyby 10/18/17 – Arrow Gets Off The Island, Again

On this episode of The Flyby, Green Arrow finally caught up to the rest of the so-called Arrowverse last Thursday with his own season premiere.  That puts Arrow into season 6, coming off what Sarjex and Cranky T-Rex agreed was a very solid season 5 finale.  Tonight they’ll talk about whether or not their predictions from that cliffhanger came true, and of course whether or not season 6 has capitalized on it. Meanwhile, Supergirl and The Flash have made it to episode 2 of their new seasons, so we’ll see if they’ve improved any from last week’s less than thrilling...

The Flyby 10/11/17 – Supergirl and The Flash Return!

On this episode of The Flyby, we get back to our normal routine as the Arrowverse shows on the CW are back!  As of tonight’s show, we’ve gotten season premieres for Supergirl and The Flash, so Sarjex and Cranky T-Rex will happily run down their thoughts on both season openers.  Both our hosts lamented Supergirl‘s downward spiral through most of last season, culminating in a finale that was less than thrilling, so no doubt much of that discussion will involve analyzing if this gets Supergirl back in the sky. As for The Flash, it ended last season in a pretty good place...
